How Mom Can Care For Herself This Holiday Season
I like to be transparent when I can — it’s the beauty of having a blog. Being a mom is tough all of the time, but it can be especially rigorous during the holiday season. You’re busy shopping, cooking and caring for everyone in your household. It’s like you can never catch a break. All of this plus work, cooking, cleaning and taking care of the kids’ needs, it can feel never-ending. I wanted to share some tips on how, as a mom, you can take care of yourself this holiday season.
Take Time For Yourself
One of the best things you can do this holiday season is to take time for yourself. Whether you sneak in a massage during the month of December from Massage Envy or you sneak into the bathroom for a little peace and quiet, both can be a great way to recharge.
Don’t Stretch Yourself Thin
It’s okay to say no when you can’t do it all. A big part of feeling stressed out around the holidays is feeling as though you always need to say yes. Saying “no” can actually help you feel more empowered and less like a welcome mat. You may hurt feelings along the way and that’s okay because you’re only one person.
Refill When You Can
I know that all moms have different ways they refill. I know the way I refill is running to the grocery store by myself, reading a good book or even a massage. When you get the chance, refill! You can’t take care of others if your tank is empty. If you can’t think of a good way to refill, then take some time to make a list of activities that make you feel whole and human again. Practice one of these activities at least once a week!
Experience Massage Envy for Yourself
As I mentioned, one of my favorite ways to take care of myself is by getting a massage. Why not try Massage Envy! I believe it’s an important part of my wellness journey. Remember that total body care is when you pause during the daily grind and take care of yourself. Massage Envy is a leader in providing accessible massage and skin care services and they’re here to help you in this thing called “living.” My “Because Moment” is taking time to care for myself correctly, so I can care for others in my life correctly!
